Worst Politician Selfie Idea Yet


Ed Miliband, Matt Hancock and Michael Gove step aside, Belgian MEP Guy Verhofstadt has done his best to single-handedly ruin the selfie. He has set up aself-EU contest where entrants are encouraged to “send us your selfie, showing us where and how you enjoy the benefits of European integration”. The prize? “You could win a day with Guy Verhofstadt.”

Surely no one will be able to beat Guido’s entry:

Let us know when to pop round, Guy!

    Are all conservatives racist or have some modernised?

    How do we combat the sexism that forces women to not be allowed to empower themselves by being an MP?

    Does telling a joke about women mean the joke-teller is encouraging rape culture? Should he be sent to prison or simply re-educated in a special camp?

            But of the specific charges, she was found not guilty. As was Michael Jackson. But everyone still thinks he, and she , were guilty.

      Retail staff get shit money for doing a thankless and at times dangerous job, and I’m glad that I got out of the management side of it 20 years ago as it is even worse now than it was then. I’m glad that he got 6 months, although personally I’d have given him five years, on Weddell Island, just off West Falkland.

    Following a lull, due to unpredictable weather in the Med, the flow of Africans and now Syrians, trying to enter Europe is now at unprecedented levels. In Morocco, the Spanish colonial enclaves of Miella and Ceutta are seperated from Africa only by a fence. Hundreds attempt to cross this each night Some even try to swim around it.
    Many thousands more attempt to cross to Lampedusa and other Italian islands using old African fishing boats. A few days ago the Italian Navy “rescued” over a thousand in one day! Last week it was reported that over four thousand had been rescued in four days.

    Any immigration into Europe is unsustainable and something must be done to stem this flood.

By the presentation of a few elementary queries, concerned with how all those component parts fitted together into a working model of the real world. Would not such effort be better invested in a campaign to highjack the EU elections? By inviting everyone to handwrite the following lines on the top of their ballot papers:
